and +1 also from me :-)

Seems like this the way we want to go. So, what will be the next steps? 
Seems like this have to be done by cooperation of PTL's of Horizon and 
TripleO and ttx probably?

Thank you,

The Tuskar-UI code needs to be able to move quickly and at times drastically, this could be detrimental to the stability of Horizon.  And conversely, the stability needs of Horizon and be detrimental to the speed at which Tuskar-UI can change.

Individuals who make significant review contributions to Horizon will certainly be considered for Horizon core in time.  I agree with Gabriel's suggestion of adding Horizon Core to tuskar-UI core.  The idea being that Horizon core is looking for compatibility with Horizon initially and working toward a deeper understanding of the Tuskar-UI code base.  This will help insure the integration process goes as smoothly as possible when Tuskar/TripleO comes out of incubation.
